GreenGuard Certification

Source

GreenGuard Certification programs provide scientific rigor based on best practice guidelines, stringent evaluation criteria and robust verification procedures to effectively control the sources of these environmental pollutants.

Certified products include adhesives, paints, insulation, furniture, cabinetry, building materials, air filters, flooring, textiles and many others.

Manufacturers may choose to certify an individual product, but typically certify complete product lines that combine a range of raw materials, components, manufacturing processes and manufacturing locations. Participation in a GreenGuard Certification program requires a manufacturer to participate in product reviews, manufacturing evaluations and certification testing of products and materials. The GreenGuard Environmental Institute and its scientific partners work hand-in-hand with manufacturers to develop effective, efficient and economical plans for certifying a broad range of products. All certified products carry the GreenGuard Certification mark. Use of the certification mark is contingent on a manufacturer’s continued compliance with ongoing certification testing and reporting requirements. Presence of the mark on certified products provides assurance to consumers, specifiers, architects, designers, suppliers, regulators, manufacturers and other third parties, that labeled products meet the requirements of the program.
